All android smartphones can easily switch internet networks when using two cellular SIM cards. Likewise with Xiaomi phones such as the Redmi Note 8 and Note 9 and the Pro series, you can choose whether to use the first or second slot card used for internet data lines.
For example, on a Xiaomi cellphone, two cellular cards are installed, such as the first slot for Telkomsel Provider and the second for Indosat IM3. In the case, it turns out that the internet quota filled with data is on the IM3 SIM card, so the smartphone owner can change the network to be able to use the second card.
On almost all android phones the default system settings will use the internet network that is in the first SIM slot even though two cards are installed in it. (Also read How to disable keyboard sound on Redmi Note 8 and 9 and Redmi Note 9 Pro Screenshot Tips with buttons and screen swipe)
Many owners of Xiaomi cellphones or other types of smartphones have lost their main credit due to an error in choosing the data line used, so that when you don’t have an internet package on the selected SIM Card, it will automatically cut the main credit and of course it will be more expensive because the payment is measured per kilobyte of data.
How to change the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 / 9 internet network
The admin assumes that you have installed two cellular cards in slots 1 and 2. In the case, your internet quota filled with data packages is on the second card, then the steps to switch internet lines to use the second SIM on Redmi Note 8 and 9 are as follows .
- Open menu Settings on a Xiaomi cellphone (Icon like a gear)
- Then enter the menu SIM card & Cellular network
- Swipe down the screen slightly and press on the option Internet
- Select the cellular card you want and wait for the network to change to the second SIM slot line
- Close the Settings menu again and try to connect to the internet
If at any time you want to change the path back, then the way is the same as above. For example, the second card slot, namely IM3 Indosat, has run out of quota, then you buy a package for the Simpati Telkomsel card that is installed in the first slot, then you must change it so that the main credit of the second SIM card is not cut off.
That’s an easy way to change the internet network on HP Redmi Note 8 and 9. The same way can also be done on several other Xiaomi types such as Redmi Note 7, Poco F2 Pro, Mi Note 10 and several other types, hopefully it will be useful.
